One of Adler University’s own was recently named among “75 people you should know” by a prominent publication in his home city.

Rockford Register Star reporters sat down with Matt Finn, Psy.D., a forensic psychologist, alumnus and professor at Adler’s Chicago Campus. He told them that the field is really about understanding others and how they’re feeling.

“Then, the next step is helping someone,” Finn said, in an interview that largely centered on the need to build community-based resources for those struggling with mental illness.

Finn’s forensics journey began in the 1990s, when he pursued a master’s degree, and thereafter, a doctorate at Adler. He has since spent much of his career working with prisoners and jail inmates, determining whether individuals are fit for trial, testifying in court, and providing therapy.
